It’s all about the details for Marina Smith, a Halifax-based artist who’s been making romantic creations for over 30 years. Reflecting her interest in retro-futurism and steampunk, Smith’s jewellery and metalwork (found at various craft shows in town) is whimsical while powerful, and so incredibly ornate it’s hard to believe it’s handmade. “Every item I make, by virtue of the fact I utilize upcycled components, are unique and one of a kind,” she says. “Like those who wear them.” Smith sends celebratory shout outs to “the many talented artisans who reside in Nova Scotia, every one of you inspires me.”
